    Just got off the phone with Howard's tech. He says to keep the oil light! 10-30 wt. or lighter. Even said 5-20 wt. is great. So guess I'm doing an oil change on my fresh oil change!

    No problem for me, but all I've done is post links to my Imgur account in threads. But I did see yours above Steve. But didn't see Mario's the other day at first. Then later they were there.

    I've never had any issues doing all my cars in 3/8" line. Works for fairly high HP engines, yet small enough to shape easily.
